Is There Actually A Law Firm Out There That Actually Cares About The Individual And The Rights We Are Losing Everyday? Please Try And Help Me Out With A Solution.
If you want a labor lawyer (employment specialist) to represent an emloyee, they exist. Plenty. Hire an attorney to represent you.
It seems there might be separate legal issues you have going on here.
1) Long term disability
2) Termination of employment
Let's see if I follow.
May 2012 - Employee was cleared to return to work
Jan. 2013 - Employee applied for other jobs
March 2013 - Latest time employee could appeal decision to end long term disability. thus, the LTD payments ended.
March 2013 - Employee was terminated, retroactive to (effective on) the date the LTD appeal rights expired.
Between May 2012 and March 2013, I'm not sure from this narrative waht the employee was doing on the job, if anything.
Generally, it seems that employees and employers have different rightrs:
* An employee with LTD insurance has the right to get paid while unable to work for an extended period of time. This is governed by the terms of the LTD insurance plan. The employee is entitled to the terms, which should spell out the terms of appeal of the decision to end Long Term Disability payments.
* An employer needs to fill a job with someone to do the work. The employer does not have to keep the job unfilled, waiting for an employee out on LTD.
* Job duties need to be performed by somebody.
* When the employee returns to work from LTD, they might not have a job to return to. Often.
* Some employees are only able to do light duty jobs. Employers might not have those jobs, and can terminate the employment.
* The employee might be lucky enough to qualify for a different job with the employer. However, they compete for the open positions, against other candidates. Someone else might be considered better suited for the job(s) that open up.
* Being cleared to return to work does not mean an employee was terminated because they did not file an appeal. They might have been terminated WHEN they did not file an appeal. * The termination letter might have chosen the end of employment as the last date the employee was allowed to appeal a decision on long term disability.
* LTD appeal - I don't know the insurance plan terms; it's not my plan.
Please, seek the advice of a labor lawyer who sides with employees They exist. Look up "labor lawyer". Make sure they represent employees, not employers. Yes, they exist. I worked with dozens long ago for a labor law agency.
You need a labor lawyer to figure this out, if you want to hire one.
"Labor lawyer" or employee relations attorney are the names of specialists representing either employers or employees. You want to make sure you get one specializing in employees rights. Get an opinion; it might be a free consultation.
However, your date of appeal has passed.
Being cleared to return to work doe not mean that your job remains open while you are on long term disability.
You might not have your old job open to return to.
The employer might not be required to keep the old job open.
The employer might have had to replace you while you were disabled.
The employer might not have to return you to your old position.
The employer might not have another position for which you are the best candidate.
As A Attorney, How Many Years Of Law School Would You Have To Complete And Have Anyone Heard Of A Malpractice Attorney ??? What Is Their Career ???
I've been an attorney for more than eighteen years; so my advice might be based on outdated information. When I was researching law schools to determine which to attend, there were a couple which did not absolutely require applicants to have bachelor's degrees.
One might be able to complete law school in two and one-half years by attending summer school; however, I recommend not doing that unless you have a very special and overriding need to finish law school as quickly as possible. In all likelihood, you will benefit more by working in the law during the summer rather than attending summer school.
It is not absolutely necessary to attend or graduate from law school. There are a couple of states, one of which is Washington, which have clerkship programs: one trains to be an attorney by apprenticing ones self to a judge or practicing attorney. The downside is that you might not be able to practice law in a state which doesn't have a clerkship program because such states require graduation from an A.B.A. accredited law school for admission to the bar.
There are many malpractice attorneys. They practice in the area of professional malpractice. Probably most of them practice in medical malpractice, suing or defending physicians; however, there are many who also practice in legal malpractice, suing or defending attorneys.
Any Child Support Lawyers Out There?
Need Information On Whether A Father Who Makes More Than 50,000 Get Child Support From A Mother Who Is Remarried. She Is On Disability But Makes Money Through Her Websites Online And The Husband Makes Atleast 30,000. What Is Expected Of Child Support, What Is Included In Their Decision Of How Much They Pay, Is It Only The Mother'S Income, Is Disability Not Part Of Child Support Decisions, Etc. Whatever You Know, I Want To Know. Kids Ar 14 And 10! Lived With Dad For 6 Years And Dad Has Custody!
I put a link below that you can check the law in your state but you can also do it by just Googling it for child support calculator for such state. Basically if you are on disability the kids should already be receiving benefits under you which should be going to the dad since he has custody. If you and your current husband do not have any kids than his income would not be included if figuring out you and your ex's child support amounts for your kids. Since he has a higher income than you so your portion would be at a lower percentage. Check the last link for your state as it is based on cost of living in each state.
Under my state is comes out to $488 but since she receive disability (which he should be getting) and has a side job that amount will be different.

Search for the bar association in your county. They have an attorney referral service. I wouldn't use any website, as they are just paid-listings.
Should I Close Out A Personal Injury Case With Marriott Liability Insurance Or Should I Be Claiming More?
Last Year My Mom Slipped On Black Ice And Did A Free Fall On Her Back In A Marriott Parking Lot, While She Was Staying There For Business. As A Result She Was Taken To The Emergency Room. Since She Was There On Business Her Employer's Workers Compensation Kicked In And Has Covered All Medical Bills, Physical Therapy Costs, Etc. A Year Later Her Back Is Still Giving Her Pain, 2 Of Her Discs Have Been Dislodged According To Test Results. She Is Still Scheduled For More Tests To Be Done. Marriott Liability Insurance People Have Contacted My Mom And Want To Pay For The Expenses Incurred Due To The Accident So That They Can Close The Case. So They Asked My Mom How Much Out Of Pocket Expenses She Had Incurred. My Mom Told Them She Did Not Have Exact Figures But That She Had Purchased Some Exercise Equipment For About $600. They Said They Would Pay Her $750 If She Wanted To Close The Case And Have A Check Mailed.
What Should My Mom Be Claiming?
Should She Wait To Close The Case?
What Happens If My Mom Loses Her Job For Some Reason, Will Workers Compensation Continue To Pay If There Continuing Medical Expenses? If So, How Long Will They Pay?
I wouldn't take the money. In the short run $750 is a short amount of money, and if you can do without, wait it out. Who knows what kind of recovery your mom will have? If there was negligence by the hotel, and your mom becomes unable to provide for herself, then there's liability and damages to be paid. If not, and your mom recovers, then you can wait a while longer, and see if there are no more medical expenses. One thing is for sure, if you settle now, any expenses or damages that your mom might be entitled to will be gone. I say wait.
